Product overview

We’re continuously optimizing Frontastic, and we’re always looking for ways to improve the customer experience. From terminology updates to improving error messaging to adding the ability to create temporary redirects, and so much more. We’ll give a bit more information on 2 below:

Sandbox improvements

Over the past few months, we’ve made various improvements to the workflows around Frontastic sandboxes as well as improving their stability, error messaging, and introducing a new state to help debugging issues. You can also now choose to create a sandbox with public project domains. This means a developer can easily share a URL for a project running on a sandbox with someone on the business team to review the work in progress. You can find out more information in our Frontastic sandbox article.

CLI improvements

We’ve also been making lots of improvements to the Frontastic CLI. The biggest change we’ve made is introducing a dashboard when you run the frontastic run command. Instead of seeing all the logs, you’ll now see a dashboard to get a quick overview of how the CLI is running and if there are any errors. You can use hotkeys to access the different logs plus, open the test URL and quit the CLI. You can find out more information in our CLI changelog.

For more updates and changes, you can see our changelog.
